As Jesus reminds us in Matthew 25 when we feed the hungry we
are feeding the one we follow. We partner with Metro Caring to address hunger
and food insecurity in our community. All are invited to join with us in our
efforts as well as to contact these organizations directly to volunteer or
contribute. Metro Caring provides nutritious food to hungry families and
individuals while promoting health and self-sufficiency.
Each year the Kirk hosts a Rice and Beans Event. In March
2016 we collected rice and beans and together divided them into individual and
family size servings to be distributed at Metro Caring. Our total reached over
1000 lbs. We then invited our neighbors to join us in this project and the Cory
Merrill Neighborhood donated over 200 lbs that were divided and delivered to
Metro Caring in June.
Additionally, each year our Young Adults group hosts a
Souper Bowl of Caring Event on Superbowl Sunday. All finds raised are donated
to Metro Caring.
Along with our organized events several of our members work
a weekly volunteer shift at Metro Caring. For more information contact the Kirk
office or go to www.metrocaring.org
